an early learning intervention which aims to improve
the life chances of children by offering essential
information and key ideas about supporting
children's learning in the first five years from
birth to school. recognising that children learn
most at home in the early years, the focus is on
very early communication skills - the foundations of
later literacy - and children's social and emotional
development. The programme is about making the most
of everyday life with babies and young children, and
having fun. it builds on what parents already do,
recognising babies' and young children's
extraordinary capacity to learn. The programme
supports parents' confidence, children's self esteem
and educational attainment and life-long learning.
